Tolerating One Another’s Weaknesses — 9 Comments

  1. Thank you Sheryl, your post are always so timely and written at the right time. I look forward to seeing you in my in-box. Have a wonderful, blessed day and keep serving God and Christ in your daily life.

    • Thank you SO much, Dave. It’s so nice to see you again. Thank you for letting me know that God is using my devotions for His purposes.
      You have a wonderful, blessed day as well, Dave.

  2. Shery, thank you for your insightful blog message focusing on tolerating others. As I pause to reflect on your words: “Imagine what our world would look like if we finally accepted that the people in our lives will never be perfect and choose to tolerate their imperfections”, I am embarrassed to admit that I sometimes pass judgment on and criticize others when I see them doing something I would not do (as if I am perfect). Although I try to keep those kinds of thoughts internal and unspoken, how this must grieve my loving Father. It is the sin I ask forgiveness for on a regular basis. Thank you for this eloquent reminder about bearing with one another in love. May my heart learn the importance of loving others wholeheartedly by knowing that God loves them and that I need to see everyone through His eyes of unconditional love. Amen! [I am both blessed and honored to share your message to my Timeline.]

    • I appreciate your comment on several levels, Joyce – including your willingness to be so transparent. Truth be told, I also often sin in the same way. May we pray for each other!
      And thank you for sharing my devotion on your Facebook page!

  3. This is so true! If only we would truly love one another! Thank you for this reminder to practice love. Love is not a feeling; but an action. 1 Corinthians 13 teaches us how to love.

  4. And if it pulls at our hearts when one of our children mistreats their sibling—whom we also love, imagine how much it grieves our heavenly Father when we undermine one another. This is powerful!
